The Hotel

The 5-star Kyma Suites Beach Hotel, Kyma (Greek for Waves) was named after the Greek sound of summer, the land the gods chose, the birthplace of ‘the love of travellers’ (Filoxenia). This beautiful hotel, sat quietly on the shore, directly at the entrance to the Old Town and at merely 300m distance from the organized beach, defined by its architecture and much sort after location, presides over ‘Unknown Soldier Square’ and the Porta di Sabbionara (Gate of Sand) that frames the eastern entrance to Rethymno’s majestic old town. This Cretan city, that has stood since ancient Greek times has Venetian architectural influences, a traditional harbour and bustling streets, offering everything from local delicacies, to Greek linens, to local leather and must visit bars and restaurants.
